Memories of an Indian Childhood with Sita Brand @ Halton Mill
Oct 19 @ 7:30 pm

Memories of an Indian Childhood

By Sita Brand

An extraordinary personal story mixed with traditional tales.

Be transported to Bombay… dusty, crowded and vibrant…

Welcome to Sita’s world of large families, stubborn hairdos and romantic train journeys. Slowly the light-hearted stories about friendships and games give way to darker more painful memories. Her father’s gruelling exodus at the onset of World War II and later the Indian emergency, precipitating the need to leave India and come to Britain.

Atmospheric, intimate, funny and moving, Memories of an Indian Childhood is an autobiographical show in which Sita’s own experience of growing up in India is intertwined with the folk tales that influenced her childhood and is consummately told by Sita Brand.

Advance tickets £10/£8. On the door £12/£10

Jack Dee "Off The Telly" at Lancaster Grand Theatre @ Lancaster Grand

Off The Telly: Jack Dee

Everyone’s favourite grumbler, Jack Dee, is returning to the stand-up stage this autumn with his first solo tour in six years. Join Jack for an evening of entertainment (food and beverages are not included) as he hits the road with his eagerly awaited brand new UK tour, Off The Telly.

“In these difficult and uncertain times, people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten their day. And that’s very much where I come in” says Jack.

Jack’s most recent solo UK tour, Jack Dee Live, travelled the country for 18 months to sold-out audiences delighted to be entertained by him. This was followed by the release of his sixth stand-up DVD for Universal Pictures (UK) – Jack Dee So What? Live.

His last foray on to the live stage saw him bring a brand new type of live show to audiences in 2015 with Jack Dee’s Helpdesk. Jack and his panel of special guests helped to shed light on an array of the audience’s personal problems, dilemmas and issues with nothing pre-planned. Met with critical success, Jack Dee’s Helpdesk was commissioned by BBC Two and included series on the General Election, the US Presidential Election and the Brexit Referendum.

Most recently Jack starred in two series of ITV sitcom Bad Move, created and co-written alongside fellow Lead Balloon writer Pete Sinclair. Bad Move was a ratings success for ITV with the series averaging 4 million viewers.
